He claimed he bought the company in a hostile takeover.
When I was a kid, I stole some bubble gum from an open box that I found on a department store shelf. My brother grabbed a handful, too. Just when I started chomping and grinning, relishing in my victory over the man, a guy in a sportcoat and mirrorized sunglasses grabbed my arm and asked where my parents were. I had been stone cold busted by store security. I learned a valuable lesson that day. I learned that you should never trust a guy who looks like Jim Rockford and hangs out in the toy department.
Shoplifting is a real problem. Just think about how many times you’ve walked in to a store and noticed a cruiser police sitting by the front door. That car is not there because there’s a special on roasted chicken. They are almost always arresting some poor soul who’s being held in a small interior room after being caught by security officers. Investigators in the Gainesville Police Department responded to a call about a man shoplifting at a local Walmart recently. When they arrived, they made contact with the man who was accused of stealing clothes from the store. When interviewed, the man gave a surprising reason why he had taken the items in question. The man reportedly told officers it was okay for him to take the clothing because he owned Walmart. He went on to say that he had recently purchased the company in a hostile takeover.
Turns out, that story was false. The multi-billion dollar company is still owned by founder Sam Walton’s family. The net worth of the Walton family is currently around $212 billion dollars.
According to police, 51-year-old Steven Francis told investigating officers that he feels no remorse for taking the clothing, as he already owns the store and everything in it. Francis is being held at the Alachua County Jail and is awaiting sentencing for stealing about $200 worth of clothing from the store. Source: WCJB.com

Beatles: Top 50 Songs Ranked
Narrowing down The Beatles catalog to just 50 songs and then ranking those 50 songs is both enjoyable and torture. After all, we’re trying to rank The Beatles.
Much like snowflakes, it’s unlikely any two rankings will shake out the same, but isn’t that the beauty of lists like this? So, without further ado, here is The Beatles’ top 50 songs ranked. Let the debating begin!

Travel Hacks To Make Your Journey Easier This Thanksgiving
This year, Thanksgiving is expected to have more travelers than it has since the pandemic. Which means that traveling will be more stressful than it has in years. Here’s a pro-tip: per CNN, flying out on Thanksgiving day is actually easier than flying on the days leading up to Thursday. Over the next few days, 54 million people will travel 50+ miles from Wednesday and Sunday this week. The worst day for traveling is the Sunday after Thanksgiving — the single busiest travel day of the entire year.
The Monday before Thanksgiving, fares are 17% cheaper than flying out the Wednesday before, per Nerdwallet (via TikTok). By extending your trip one day and flying out Cyber Monday, you can save 15% on your flight as opposed to flying the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Airlines can allow passengers to track their checked luggage with an app, but TikTokers found a hack that’s even better: take a tracker like an Apple AirTag and drop it in your luggage.
Most people will drive this holiday, which makes sense: the average airfare prices are up about 40% from 2021, with leisure travelers paying an average of $289 one way, according to CNN. AAA estimates that 49 million will travel by car over holidays, compared to 4.5 million who fly. And for those drivers, gas prices are a far bigger concern than airfares. See the best traveling hacks this Thanksgiving holiday below, and save yourself time and money:
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny.
That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards.
After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind.
He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex.
He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
